Back to back hits were made by Josh Bell and Jung Ho Kang in the bottom of the ninth inning. Hoping to prevent the game to going into a tenth inning, Danny Ortiz looked to put up a point for the Indians. Ortiz, unable to bring the team to the plate, forces the extra inning.
The tenth and eleventh innings continued the streak of a scoreless game.
With two outs at the bottom of the twelfth inning, Adam Frasier drove home Dan Gamache to send the Indians to a 1-0 lead against the Bulls. Starting pitchers Jameson Tallion and Matt Andriese together combined 14 shutout innings and only five hits before the game was settled by the bullpens.
